Quality vertical shooters with touch control and auto shooting ?

I have just played Skysmash and Skyforce (why is there only a lite version available for skyforce ? ) they are nice games

What are the best vertical shooters with touch control and auto shooting? ( I find that best for this device)

Also any with global high scores ?

I know there are threads about this topic but they include all shooters and are older threads, so any suggestion ?

And of course, if there are some with Global scores, it helps to keep it addictive.

I agree with Siberian Strike. Believe it or not, the EA Star Trek game is quite good too.

Arcade style shoot'em ups...

Myself as a wish list for japanese developers, to bring the japansese arcade shoot'em ups to the iphone.

The one developer that springs to mind is, " cave-atlus "

The awesome graphical brilliance of " Deathsmiles " available on the ps3 and xbox 360 or any arcade shooter like " do don pachi "

we can all dream but who knows???
